Product Description

This vintage Gibson ES-330 has gone through a few of its nine-lives but still has plenty more adventures in the tank. Yep, it's a guitar that you can't just let it sit at home in the case, so its gonna get a little bit of disrespect every now and then. No worries though, it's a survivor through and through.

First things first, it's the real thing. An absolutely to-die-for 1959 Gibson ES-330. It's got the prominent "Mickey Mouse" ear cutaways. 50's style sunburst finish. Big, but not too big later '59 neck carve. So it's got great bones. Pick it up and play it acoustically and you know its a winner from word one.

From there, the story takes a few turns. Some guitars just coast through the years, hidden away in a closet. This one got out and lived and shows every minute of it. There's plenty of paint wear and headstock repair that only a mother could love. It's stable and the guitar holds tuning well, even with the Bigsby. The electronics have been replaced and the guitar is loaded up with a great sounding set of boutique pickups from Jason Lollar.

It's a player through and through thanks to recent pro re-fret. You can fret cleanly anywhere on this neck and get from one end to the other pretty effortlessly. It feels great in your hands and being fully hollow it is a feather light 6.4 lbs. 

Hard case included.
